Level 3 and BT Team in Central and Eastern Europe

Level 3 Communications' European Markets Group is working collaboratively with BT Global Services to expand backbone capacity in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The joint project has ensured that there is a 2,400 km fiber network fully equipped with next generation networking capability. In addition, under the terms of this new multi-year agreement, Level 3 will deliver wavelength services to BT within the CEE region and more broadly through Europe.

Level 3 said the deal enables it to further expand its fiber-based network, offering full services in the existing markets of Prague and Vienna while adding new points of presence in Budapest, Bratislava and Ivancice.

BT Global Services is focusing on the service layer and optimization.
